SIM Teaching Resources:

  • Lessons from the Bromiley Case from LITFL
    • A real case, of a real patient, Elaine Bromiley, who died because of numerous factors. Her husband Martin is an airline pilot, who had a background in human factors. Elaine and Martin’s story is such a tragedy, but it is an integral part of the evolution of simulation training in our field of critical care. If haven’t seen this before, please set aside 14 minutes in your busy schedule. This is a must-see for anyone who works in critical care, or even health care in general!
